The 1903 first edition of Slipper's ABC of Fox Hunting is by Edith Anna Oenone Somerville who with her cousin Violet Florence Martin co-wrote fourteen books including the Irish RM series that hilariously documented late 19th century Irish society. Violet died in 1899 but Edith continued to write until her death aged 91 in 1949. Bid for her ABC at Matthews' auction in Oldcastle, May 13, estimate €300 - €500; www.matthewsauctionrooms.com
